I’ve been doing a lot of reflective thinking lately about life, my purpose, my ambitions and how it all links together. There was a time in my life where I thought that if I wasn’t living out my dreams then I’d rather be dead because life wouldn’t be worth living. As I grow older I realize that everything really is meant to be and that sometimes what we want for ourselves isn’t necessarily what is right for us.
I say this now because I think that if I were famous and everyone in the world knew who I was I wouldn’t be happy. Yes, it’d be exciting at first, but eventually I’d be exhausted. I’m very iffy about my privacy. I’m not the kind who likes attention. (unless I’m on stage singing) I think twice before posting a picture on Instagram of my personal life, and it’s getting worse with age. The older I get the more inclined I feel to keep that part of my life to myself. I just don’t want to feel exposed I guess. I want to share my most personal thoughts and experiences with my listeners though and I choose to do it through my music.
If you have any question about me; my views and opinion on things, my emotions, my thoughts, etc… you’ll find your answer in my songs.
I guess in some ways, this kind of lowers my chances of succeeding because a huge part of being a singer these days is exposing yourself to the world and sharing every moment with everyone through social media outlets. I’m not that active to be honest, especially these days. I’m also not interested in being the guy who posts pictures of how great his life is (not that mine is luxurious or anything, but even if it was, I wouldn’t brag about it!), or the guy who takes selfies of himself in the gym to show progress, or post half naked pictures of myself all the time. I could do that and I could sell out if I wanted to, but that’s just not me and I refuse to have people follow me to fawn over a few shirtless pictures or be interested in me in that shallow manner. There’s so much more to me that should be appreciated, that deserves to be appreciated. There’s so much more to all of us actually, but people are generally sadly more interested in the fast and easy these days.
I’m just thinking out REALLY loud here and I think I may have missed the point of this post - what was it again?! I have no clue. I’m just expressing myself I guess. Oh well, I hope everyone has a fantastic weekend. I’m busy working on a special project which I have always dreamed of! I will definitely share details on that as soon as I feel ready to. I’m excited!
